Description

Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this unique, bespoke Rinspeed Model R69, or “969”, Turbo, which combines a unique specification with excellent value.

“Absolute aesthetic, Dynamic elegance and Breathtaking speed”; that’s why Zurich-based Swiss coachbuilder Rinspeed chose the Cheetah as their company emblem. Finished in Rinspeed’s trademark pearlescent white, this 930 Turbo looks every inch the 1980’s style icon. Rarely available in right-hand drive, this is a car that will appeal to any Porsche collector looking for a high-performance sports car and a style statement too.

Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm to a total displacement of 3,299 cc and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurised air charge, the intercooler helped increase power output to 296 hp at 5,500 rpm and 412 Nm (304 lb/ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. 0-60 mph for the slant-nosed models was achieved in just 4.7 seconds.

A seriously expensive car when specified new, the Rinspeed “969”, and supplied new by JCT 600 Porsche, Leeds, it was built to order for its carpet magnette first owner.  This car has wanted for nothing during its lifetime. Boasting an excellent Porsche main dealer service history, it presents beautifully, and would bring something unique to even the largest Porsche collection.

Benefitting from significant recent expenditure, the Rinspeed 969 is complete with history file, invoices, MOT history and Porsche-stamped service handbook and tool roll. This is a wonderful, low mileage example of 1980’s motoring history, which is ready to be enjoyed.

Available to view now at our London showroom.
